not with the president who seems never to know about anything. but looking at kathleen sebelius, she still has a job after this big bungle. the bosses away and the cats are going to play. >> the president might be perfectly innocent in his own right, but the staff is running roughshod on him and not only on him by the constitution. >> there's a question as to how engaged the a's. an article about how he likes to invite columnists over to the white house to discuss their columns and viewpoints and sometimes this goes on for 2.5 hours and not sound like a lot of fun. i think i would like to do that and that is not governing. that's not the president of the united states should probably be doing. having 2.5 hour debate sessions. is the president of the united states and his governing responsibility here and you're getting the sense that he doesn't like the governing aspect of his job. he would rather engage in discourse with david brooks or someone else and not actually run the country. and that is disturbing. neil: on the signature piece of legislation, it's a remarkable achievement and then to drop t
obama himself to health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius has apologised for the website's problems and vowed to fix it. we are hearing conflicting reports about what went wrong with the roll out. cgi, the contractor developing the site may have warned the obama administration that it would not be ready tro go live on october 1st. we know the administration says it needs until the end of november to fix the technical glitches. that's two months after it launched. to comment the penalty for not enrolling under the new law is effectively waved for six weeks. the new deadline will be march 31st. if you are one of the estimated 15 million americans who buy your own insurance, you are not employed through an employer or insured through an employer, you have to sign up for coverage by the deadline or face a penalty. you can do that through your insurer or go to the government changes, assuming healthcare.gov works one day. >> 8.5 million of 15 million could qualify for a subsidy. the affordable part of the affordable care act may be a misnomer for 6.5 millions that didn't quali

. health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius and other administration officials revealed that the federal website letting small business owners shop for health plans won't be ready until late november. meanwhile, some small business owners are getting a rude awakening. despite assurances from the white house people can keep their current plans, many small business owners are getting cancellation notices because their current plans don't comply with the new law. helping us try to sort all this out is tom hart, the president of the national association of health underwriters and the president of landmark benefits incorporated. and steve roeper is the president of roeper insurance and financial insurances. great to see both of you. >> thank you. >> good morning. >> tom, let me start with you and give you the first scenario. i am a company and i have less than 50 employees, i don't have to provide insurance, but i would like to. i'm not currently providing it. what do i do? >> well, my first recommendation to any one of those small businesses across the country is don't go to

by the end of the month. >>> kathleen sebelius was the butt of a political joke. she was there to talk about the healthcare act and presented her with the book. websites for dummies to poke help. she quickly passed the book off to an aide without commenting. >>> it is a first for west point. >> it hosted the first wedding for two men. this is a picture of larry chote iii and his couple. >> they he met through a friend after graduation. back in 2012, they hosted two same sex weddings but they were both women. >>> hall mark is apologizing for changing the wording of on a well nobody ornament. it says don we now our fun apparel. >> it should say don we now our gay apparel. >> they have received negative comments about the change. and she said no one was ever oftenned by them and so shouldn't have been changed. >>> this is the website trip adviser and rated them number 2 for favorite restaurant insist the u.s. >> it is at north point street and number 1 is glickio and sons which is in new york city. >>> they expected to be away from the field. and fox went to the hospital after getting light ha
care and much sweeter, too. we thank ryan for going out. and according to kathleen sebelius, it is not her fault she can't enroll in obama care, that is the way the law was written. >> if it is possible for you to forego government program you have now, will you tell the american public yes, i will go in the exchanges next year like everybody else. >> sir, the way the law is written. >> yes, nor. if you are wrong. >> i don't give misinformation to the american. i don't want to give misinformation. >> i want you to research. >> you go into the exchanges? if you can, will you? >> that is yes, no. >> i will look at it. i don't have any idea. >> that is not a yes or no. >> if it she really wants to go under the obama care exchanges, of course she can. she doesn't want to. and that's why she isn't and neither is president obama and his family. you know when the cock won't eat what comes out of the kitchen, that tells me something is wrong with what is on the plate. the reason that americans don't want it because the people who created it, won't eat their own cooking. >> democrati
recently said that health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius, if she cannot reorganize and get the kind of team we need to fix this obama care website that she shouldn't be there. are you asking for her resignation? >> judge, when you've had three and a half years, $600 million to execute on the president's signature legislation and it's this wrong, you've got to ask who's going to be held responsible and is somebody who couldn't even answer whether there were shutdowns on the site as they were going on yesterday, is she really the person to do it. you understand that this website did the tip of the iceberg. there's so much more that has to be seen, that has to be fixed in obama care and she may not be the person to do it. >> congressman, apparently this administration was warned repeatedly by the contractors that the website was not ready to go live on october 1. at the same time that the administration is looking congress in the eye and the president is looking at the american people and saying this is going to be the best thing since sliced bread. and why didn't they heed th
